Book of the Week
The Book With No Pictures by B.J.Novak: Is exactly what it says it is, a book with no pictures. But for a picture book that is pretty unusual and had us all immediately intrigued… the words of course are cleverer than most, and while there is a little font play… with big words and little words, plain words and colourful words, it is the cleverness of the words and the intertwining of the words into a conversation between the person reading and the book… that strikes the appeal. The conversation is afterall an amusing one: The book commands the reader to read every single word… the words of course are “preposterous” and “ridiculous.” The listener is left frightfully amused and would quite like to hear that conversation again. It sounds terribly serious and at first glance, quite dry… but it is packed with a somewhat quirky and endearing silliness. Not to mention the young reader is so drawn to the “side of the book” in this conversation… hoping the reader, usually mum or dad, are going to say funny and quirkier things all the way through. The initial pages are in fact very dry…
That’s us… Hope your weekend has been a fabulous one and we are so looking forward to another week of blogging with you all… not to mention a GiveAway or Two…
